BBQ Kick-off Event for Fire Inspection Season

Greetings and Salutations!

Fire inspections are right around the corner, and this year we are going to try something new!  We will have hangar inspectors onsite during the extinguisher inspections, so if you would like to get your hangar inspected while you wait for your extinguisher to be done, this will be the time. The extinguisher drop off will be in front of Ron Kirby and Dave Miller’s hangar (5499 Alpha Ave).  There will also be a 30-yard dumpster available for your convenience to do a little spring cleaning, on us!  To top off this little shindig,the Stead Airport staff will be BBQing up some hamburgers and hot dogs; it’s been a long year and it will be nice to see everyone out there. If for some reason you cannot join us on either of these two day, no problem; there will be a few extra days that the fire inspectors will still do scheduled inspections, one will be on Saturday, June 26th and the other 3 days will be announced shortly.  

Save the Date:

May 13th & 14th starting at 9am – 3:30pm.

  • Extinguisher will be $10, cash or check made out to “Sierra Fire Protection, LLC”, if your extinguisher needs a hydro test, it will be an addition $20.
  • Fire inspections on the hangars are free.

Please spread the word, we may have some new friends out there that are not on my e-mail list yet.
